Eating pickled pigs feet (the ones from the jar in the grocery store) is like eating a pickled piece of flubber with clingy, tangy jelly. Of course, you've got those toes staring at you too .

Probably the chocolate-coated insects that a classmate brought to class in high school. Crispy and crunchy. Tasted a little like chocolate-covered pretzels. Nothing too weird since then. And...it's been a looooong time since "then."

Fried catfish served in cast iron skillets, sweet tea served in Mason jars. What a hoot!
And just plain old southern cookin.
OLD CRACKER!!

hey i drink sweet tea outta mason jars!! and we serve outta our ci skillet!! it sounds like a cracker barrell restaurant.

yup on the feet and they don't always have a pedi!!

does anyone remember sanford and son? i remember an episode where lamont walked in to see his dad sitting at the kitchen table. he said whatcha doing pop? fred said paying the bills. lamont said whats for dinner pops? beef tongue, at which point fred grabs hold of a long handled fork from the pot, lifted the tongue out and licked the envelope with it, then put it back in the pot. my mom and i laughed our tails off and she made smoked tongue within the week and tried to pull that fork thing on me and i said ut ah and hid the fork. the only thing that bothered me were the taste buds.

I don't know about strange, but I've eaten gator, snake, turtle, frog legs, snails, lots of game, rabbit, squirrel, muskrat, deer, caribou, various upland birds, pigs feet, pigs ears, souse, head cheese, chicken hearts, livers gizzards ect....
But I guess my strangest choice was to order Long Island Duck in a restraunt in North Dakoda. What was I thinking!

Was he tough? Sounds like a long way to fly to end up on the dinner table!
Pigs feet don't sound too good. But I'd at least taste.
Had beef heart once. Didn't like it, too "strong" in flavor for me.
